All services received from beginning to end were excellent
Jan 29, 2020
Waited over an hour to even speak to a provider, she accidentally walked into my room twice, blame the lack of organization on a car accident on I-35, showed no concern, made a stereotype that about bringing "a bestie" and getting my "favorite Frappuccino from Starbucks" before I get my blood drawn at my next visit since I'm a young female. Getting my xrays from a student was more organized than my provider was. As I was led to getting my xrays done, the woman didn't know where she was going and I sensed she that she didn't know what she was doing and that another nurse was just too lazy to show her where to take me. I don't plan to see Karen Holmes again. I would rather drive 40 minutes to the Taylor doctors office than see her again.

Karen Holmes is an excellent educator and taught me so much about the care of my arthritic hip. She explains things so well, has an excellent "bedside manner" and warmth as well as a sense of humor. She spent a great deal of time and answered all of my questions and ask questions that made sure that I felt involved in the decision of my care. I left the appointment very satisfied with the level of care given.

One word for Karen-Outstanding! I cease to be amazed by the quality of BSW Doctors and support staff. I always feel I am getting the treatment I need. I feel very fortunate to be in the care of Baylor Scott and White.

Fantastic experience! The provider I had was sick. The receptionist got me in with another provider at the same time as my original appointment time. The provider we saw was wonderful and my mom got instant relief for her shoulder. I can't say enough about how wonderful Scott and White is
